From Gay Essential
Released in 2016 Director João Pedro Rodrigues has written The Ornithologist (O Ornitólogo) to be a parable of the story of Saint Anthony of Padua, the patron saint of lost things. The film stars Paul Hamy, Xelo Cagiao and Juliane Elting.
“Hamy is built like a Jason Statham body double, but his body language and worried blue eyes are that of someone who is completely disarmed.”
“Beginning as a routine meander into the woods in search of birds, The Ornithologist becomes an unsettling and subversive pilgrimage taking in the Camino de Santiago, a variety of bizarre individuals and a mystifying destination of self-discovery and rebirth.”
“A work of innovative surrealism that may invite comparison with other films, but stands apart as a distinctive, genre defying work in its own right.”
